Thanks Steve --
I have been reading the stills group, and it sounds like you have it under
control.
Hope you don't leave out the animation guys, on your new site.
I am willing to help out.
Darin

I'd suggest that for now, we go with Steve's offer to host the animation 
files together with the stills pictures.

Quoting from irtc.stills (Steve's posting):

-> If i read this right, this would set the end date around April 
30th/May 1st, so there's some more time to add that extra polish to your 
animation...

-> I really like the idea with the 1.000 (or so ;) book titles and the 
POVray random draw that Greg Johnson posted earlier, too. Anyone wants 
to draw up the next topic?

-> how about overlapping the announcement of the next topic with the 
current round? (like, announcing the topic one, two, four weeks early?)

Opinions?

   Ah, cool. Ok, this is fine with me, and as you all might know by now, I'm 
getting quite excited about playing with animations myself, time permitting, 
and thanks to you and others Markus, I will get that merry-go-round working 
correctly. I know that what I  have planned is all circular, but my dream is 
to do a fly-through around the carousel (up and down) with Poser figures sat 
on the horses or in a some kind of cart too. Should be fun doing it!  :o)

      This is what we'll be using for the Stills topics, and I think it will 
work great for the Anims too. It's a wonderful idea, and I really thank Greg 
for this great idea too. It will work just fine. With this method, everyone 
will be challenged to produce their INTERPRETATION of the title of an old 
'known' book (whether we know of that title or not). I think this will 
produce diverse Stills/Anims that will be certainly more interesting than 
following a unique topic. I think this idea will really get some minds 
thinking first before prodding finger-to-key.

  Next topic? Sure: "The Black Robe" by Wilkie Collins - 1824-1889.

   (Pulled via "The Hat")

  Set your imagination alight...

    Well, the way that this website is working out at the moment is that 
when the end of a round arrives, the next topic will be 'live' on the 1st of 
the next month/topic. Would this be ok with both Stills and Anims?

   Also, about the Anims, what would you guys prefer? Would you want an 
extra month to develop your animations so that everything ties in with the 
Stills for viewing? (So, instead of 4 anims a year, it would be 3?)

   Thanks for your input Markus, all, it's very much appreciated.

    ~Steve~

   And of course, I meant a few others around here too - all positive 
thoughts on something that's good for our community and souls, are good and 
*much* appreciated!


> Thanks Steve --

      Yes, I do believe I have so far. Let's just get through these first 
few months and hopefully everything will be fine and settled by then.


> Hope you don't leave out the animation guys, on your new site.

    *Our* new site Darin. This isn't for me, this is for 'Us' - the 3D 
graphics community that *we know* and love. Animations WILL be on this site, 
I promise, it's just that I've got to twist this guy Colin's arm a little to 
get it right, so bear with me for a short while. Colin? He's the guy that's 
doing this for us along with my help, (he's not into 3D graphics at all, but 
has been creating websites for the last 15 years - you should see him on his 
keyboard, I've not seen anything like it - it's just a blur as he moves 
around it, seriously. The chap knows his stuff and he's a nice guy toboot).


> I am willing to help out.

    I/We know that Darin, thanks, and I think we all appreciate any help 
that we can get around here. For now though, just play around with your Anim 
and relax - I/We want to see it.  :o)

        Regs,

      ~Steve~

Oh! Drat. Couldn't it have been the "Moonstone" or "The lady in White" by Wilkie
Collins? I've read them. And the Moonstone gives lots of scope; India, Fakirs,
Robinson Crusoe, Napoleon etc.

Oh. Now i'm confused. I thought it was about what one comes 
up with, looking at the title alone (instead of the content) 
- do i now really have to read the story each time? ;)
(though it's hard to NOT think of submarines if it would've 
been "20000 leagues under the sea"... ;) - but i'd not have 
associated India with "Moonstone"...

    Heh, no. I'm sure Stephen is holding his tongue in his cheek here... 
:o)

     Here's another one: "Before Adam" by Jack London, 1876-1916.

    Now, interpretate that title in any way that you want, Stills or Anims. 
I personally like this one, (even though I've only just seen it), and it 
sets your mind thinking about what it may have been like before Adam. But 
*who* is Adam?

      Here's another example: "The Doctors Dilemma" by Bernard Shaw, 
1856-1950. What 'Dilemma'? Who 'is' the Doctor?

        Set your mind alight...

"Before Adam"? Ouch. That just screams for trouble with 
Creationists ;) [well, actually, no - there are at least 
five days available before that, and you could depict "The 
Hiding Of The Dinosaur Skeletons" and apply for public 
funding ;)]

Funny, now somehow the image of a phone booth popped up in 
my mind... ;) it's weird how pre-made popular culture has 
gotten a hold on imagination. I guess i'll never be a "real" 
artist :)

-M

P.S.: We're still "officially" going to use the "The Black 
Robe" title, are we?

I'm just a bystander for this process.  But my intent was that each of the
two responses were equally valid:

i) A key moment from the book (but hey, who's actually gonna bother to read
some of these obscure ones)?
ii) Whatever comes to mind from the words "The Black Robe."  Me, I'm thinkin
Vader.  Not that I'd actually use Lucasfilm characters.
